About the property

4 Bedrooms - 2.5 Baths - (Sleeps 8)

Our custom built home is located in Killington on an acre of land, on a paved town road with other vacation homes. A second story has been added to make it bigger and even better. Please go to "View all rental rates" for the correct rates.

The house now has a large kitchen-dining area on the first floor with a 24' cathedral ceiling, along with 3 BRs, 1 &1/2 baths, an indoor sauna, and a shower room for two. A 'sun burst' pattern of antique skis & bamboo poles is displayed on one wall, with more antique skis and snowshoes displayed on other walls.

The new second floor has a bedroom, full bath, a living area which extends the length of the house (40') and includes a sleeping alcove with a Murphy (double) bed. There are two other sofas, several chairs & a recliner as well. The living area affords a winter view of the Green Mountains beyond the trees. A sliding glass door exits onto a large deck (with a new and larger hot tub), which descends to another deck facing the woods. The living area extends 17' into the house to a balcony overlooking the dining area.

That means it's on a first come first served basis. To keep our rates down, the rental does not include sheets, pillow cases or towels. Blankets and pillows are provided.

About Thano Schoppel

I am a retired teacher, and my wife is a retired nurse/Lamaze instructor. We live in a small village in Rockland County, New York. We are both very active in our community, and continue to work part time.

Why Thano Schoppel chose Killington

We bought the land in 1968, and built our house in 1979, adding a second story in 2004 to accommodate our growing family. We have three grown children and six grandchildren, and our Vermont home acts as a gathering point several times a year when we all get together to ski and relax.

We have many repeat renters who love our Killington home, and return year after year.

What makes this house unique

What sets our Killington home apart from most others is the incredible spaciousness of the living areas.

Great House - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house with a group of friends for a long weekend in early February and then again with my family in March and had a great stay both times. The house is comfortable with plenty of room to spread out and is a short drive to the Killington Road restaurants and the Ramshead and K1 base areas. Also, the hot tub and sauna deserve mentioning--both were great for unwinding after a day on the slopes! Thano was quick to respond to questions. I would definitely recommend staying here and plan to book again in the future.

Skiing Killington from the UK

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time in Vermont skiing. The house located in a very peacful location, surrounded by trees.The house was a great base for a family reunion and skiing holiday. We had three families (11 of us) staying for the week and the house was perfectly big enough to accomodate us all. Adequate shower and bathroom facilities even when returning exhausted from the slopes. The two lounge areas allowing the kids and adults to have their own space if wanted. The hot tub and sauna were well used and the computer with internet access was a particular hit with the kids, and a useful resource when we found our UK cell phones didn't pick up a signal in the mountains.The house is well situated for skiing - 5-10 min drive. We had two dumps of snow while there and the roads were snow ploughed very promptly ensuring no time was missed on the slopes and plenty of shovels to dig your car out. Plenty of restuarants and bars in Killington, but all need the car. House well equipped for self catering. On reflection there was nothing about the house that took away from the enjoyment of our holiday and would recommend to others.

Great home, well furnished and everything went as expected.

Just be careful of the driveway when it's icy. Cars may have a hard time getting out.

Great location, big house, fun weekend

  • 4 of 5

The house was everything that we expected. The pictures are very accurate, and the only thing that I would say is misleading is that the house is actually much bigger than it seems. The pictures of the living room don't do it justice, it is very big and spacious.

It was tough for me to decipher the layout of the house from the images so here is a breakdown:

The entire house is essentially an open floor plan. The downstairs has a dining area, a seating area around a nice fire place, and a kitchen, as well as 3 bedrooms, 1 with a bathroom, and 1 bathroom in the hallway. The ceilings are vaulted and the 1st and 2nd floors are just one open area. Upstairs is the living room, which has 1 bedroom of of it and 1 bathroom. The jacuzzi is located on the second floor second.

The house is definitely older and shows signs of use, but that is to be expected. The couches are not extremely comfy, so I would recommend bringing an air mattress instead of relying on the couch to sleep. Also, one of the twin beds was very uncomfortable and the person had to put down extra blankets and sheets to not feel the springs.

The walkways were poorly shoveled and the outside deck was completely frozen over with several inches of ice.

This might sound like complaints, but for us it was fine. We were a group of 22-24 year olds using the house for a ski weekend. I wouldn't come here with my parents, but I would recommend it to anyone who is just looking for a big fun house to stay in that is super close to the mountain.

Owner's Response: I'm glad had an overall good time at our house. in response to his review, we have replaced both twin mattresses with memory foam mattresses. We have a plowing and shoveling service, but it has many customers, and can't always get to our place first. We now have a container of sand in our entry room for our renters to use if things get icy.

Total enjoyment

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely house. The owner, Thano, responded in a very timely manner when we had questions. We had a nice snowfall while we were there. I would suggest leaving the cars, as we did, in the upper parking area when a large snowfall is predicted so the driveway can be completely plowed. We were able to dig the cars out in the upper parking area but there was a sheet of ice under the new snow. We waited until the plow came and spread dirt for traction. We bought two containers of calcium chloride at the local store for the steps and upper part of the driveway for the ice. It really wasn't sufficient. Perhaps, next time, Thano could provide a large bag of calcium chloride to handle the ice. We would definitely consider staying at this house again.

Owner's Response: Vermont winters! Snow and ice. There is now a large can of sand in our entry room for our renters to use if the plow and shoveling service doesn't get there first thing.

Close to the mountain

  • 3 of 5

It was spacious & had lots of natural light but the cabin was not very clean (bedrooms were dusty with cobwebs too). We were especially pleased with how close we were to the mountain and the owner was responsive and sent all the detailed information prior to our trip. We enjoyed spring skiing with warm temps in February, this ski season was too short this year!

Car: necessary

The house is a five minute drive from the most popular lift areas, restaurants and night spots at Killington.

Summers are wonderful at Killington. Hike the Long Trail, take the lift up to the top of Killington with your mountain bike and ride the trails down, golf, swim, or sit on the deck of the Foundry restaurant, drink your cocktail, and watch the sun set. If you're really feeling lazy, just sit on our deck, and listen to the breeze stir the leaves in the trees. In the evening, light a fire in the chiminea on the deck, and sit back and watch the flames, or look up and count shooting stars. For additional photos, contact by email. Please note that we do not use the availability calendar.
